    Description: Purpose: PROTECT, a phase III, randomized, placebo-controlled study, evaluated pazopanib efficacy and safety in the adjuvant renal cell carcinoma setting. The relationship between pazopanib exposure (C trough ) and efficacy and safety was evaluated. Patients and Methods: Evaluable steady-state blood trough concentrations were collected from 311 patients at week 3 or 5 (early C trough ) and 250 patients at week 16 or 20 (late C trough ). Pazopanib pharmacokinetic (PK) data were analyzed via a population model approach. Relationship between C trough or dose intensity and disease-free survival (DFS) was explored via Kaplan–Meier and multivariate analysis. Adverse events (AE) and AE-related treatment discontinuation proportions were summarized by C trough quartiles. Results: Most (〉90%) patients with early or late C trough data started on 600 mg. Mean early and late C trough overlapped across dose levels. Patients with higher early C trough quartiles achieved longer DFS (adjusted HR, 0.58; 95% confidence interval, 0.42–0.82; P = 0.002). Patients achieving early or late C trough 〉20.5 μg/mL had significantly longer DFS: not estimable (NE) versus 29.5 months, P = 0.006, and NE versus 29.9 months, P = 0.008, respectively. Dose intensity up to week 8 did not correlate with DFS, consistent with population PK model–based simulations showing overlapping pazopanib exposure with 600 and 800 mg doses. The proportion of AE-related treatment discontinuation and grade 3/4 AEs, with the exception of hypertension, was not correlated to C trough . Conclusions: In the adjuvant setting, higher pazopanib C trough was associated with improved DFS and did not increase treatment discontinuations or grade 3/4 AEs, with the exception of hypertension.
